Gaspare’s Winter Punch

Guests will enjoy this fragrant and fabulous “spirited” fruit punch created by world famous mixologist, Julie Reiner of The Flatiron Lounge [1] and The Clover Club, both in NYC.



Sort the cranberries, discarding any bruised fruit.

Rinse and place the cranberries in a 6 quart pan [2] with the raisins, orange zest, cinnamon sticks, whole cloves, allspice, nutmeg and cranberry juice.

Bring to a boil over high heat; cover and simmer on low heat for 20 minutes to blend the flavors.

Add the wine and sugar and heat until steaming, 6-8 minutes. Do NOT bring to a boil.

Add the Campari®, orange liqueur and almond extract. Strain out the cranberries and ladle into

punch cups.

Garnish with a cinnamon stick and star anise.
